ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the comment of English teachers about the issue of standardized testing in the U.S. The teachers indicate that the tests fail to measure student's knowledge over a period of time, there are limitations to what can be measured on paper-and-pencil test, that labeling of children can be detrimental, and that the curriculum become overreliant on commercially prepared textbooks and tests to the exclusion of teachers' creativity and knowledge.
